[WEB SITE] Restorative Therapies, Inc. Offers Expanded Options for RT300 at Home Functional Electrical Stimulation Cycling

Restorative Therapies, Inc. advances its new era in physical and occupational therapy systems for neurological injury and paralysis, announcing new options for home-based use of the groundbreaking RT300 functional electrical stimulation (FES) cycling system.

(PRWEB) June 05, 2017

FES is a physical and occupational therapy modality used to evoke functional movements and exercise not otherwise possible for individuals with a neurological impairment such as a spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, brain injury or transverse myelitis.

Restorative Therapies is the developer of FES medical devices for clinic and at home activity-based therapies. RT300 FES cycle is the result of Restorative Therapies’ ongoing commitment to the research and development of FES powered physical and occupational therapy systems. RT300 is the FES cycle chosen by all leading neurological rehabilitation clinics. RT300 has been used by over 65,000 individuals with neurological impairments.

RT300 is available for home use with an entry level system starting at $10,995. This 6 channel leg and trunk FES system includes multiple therapy options including standard, isokinetic and interval therapies and access to our FES therapy database RTILink.com which tracks outcomes motivating patients. RT300 is also unique in being easily expanded to include arms, additional channels of FES and ability to target any impaired leg, arm, shoulder or trunk muscle group.

Many people can also benefit from the use of FES separate from cycling, as a therapy for functional activities such as standing, transfers, feeding, brushing hair etc. Restorative Therapies’ new Xcite system evokes coordinated muscle contractions to assist with a wide range of task specific, strengthening and gross motor activities. RT300 home systems are expanding to include Xcite at home so patients can benefit not only from cycling but also these other activities.

Restorative Therapies’ commitment to RT300 home use is supported by our acclaimed insurance reimbursement process and dedicated clinical and technical support teams.

“Very impressed with the ownership Restorative Therapies took of the insurance appeal process. Meredith our installer was wonderful during the install process and I appreciate her knowledge and patience,” said Maryann Murphy, RT300 at home rider. “The quality of RT300 is excellent and the user manuals and website are very helpful. I had an excellent experience with Restorative Therapies and I appreciate the resources and customer support that I have access to as a customer.”

“RT300 is the most practical FES cycle because its flexibility and expandability allow it to cater to the varied needs of people with a neurological injury or paralysis. Reaching over 65,000 individuals is the result of a huge team effort between Restorative Therapies and our clinic partners,” says Andrew Barriskill, CEO of Restorative Therapies. “Together we have worked to make RT300 easy to use at home. Our new entry level systems with important therapy options including Xcite will help us assist more people with neurological impairments at home.”

“The continued growth of home FES cycling is enormously motivating to me and my team,” said Wendy Warfield MSHA, OTR/L, Clinical Manager of Restorative Therapies. “This level of at-home FES use completes the continuum of care for people with weak or paralyzed muscles due to a variety of conditions, diseases, and events,” concludes Warfield.

[WEB SITE] Restorative Therapies, Inc., Today Announced FDA Clearance for the New Xcite Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) System

Xcite multichannel FES for neuro re-education.

Restorative Therapies is the designer of medical devices providing clinic and in-home restoration therapy. Xcite is the next in the series of FES powered physical therapy systems that started with the company’s hugely successful RT300 FES cycle.

FES is a physical therapy rehabilitation modality used to evoke functional movements and exercise not otherwise possible for individuals with a neurological impairment such as a spinal cord injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis or cerebral palsy.

FDA 510(k) marketing clearance allows Restorative Therapies to commence marketing Xcite in the USA.

The new Xcite FES system delivers up to 12 channels of electrical stimulation to nerves which activate core, leg and arm muscles. Easy to use sequenced stimulation evokes functional movement enabling a patient’s paralyzed or weak muscles to move through dynamic movement patterns.

“Xcite is a physical therapy system which provides a library of coordinated multichannel FES therapies for people with neurological impairments,” said Prof. David Ditor of Brock University, in Ontario, Canada, “After being involved in the development trials we are excited to see the system obtain FDA clearance in addition to the existing CE mark, Canadian and Australian approvals making the system more widely available.”

“Xcite is the first truly practical FES rehabilitation system of this kind that I have seen. In addition to combining several valuable neuro-rehabilitation interventions, functional electrical stimulation, mass practice and neuromuscular re-education, Xcite is portable and easy enough to use that it could be used in the patient’s home,” said Prof. Susan Harkema of the Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center, University of Louisville.

“In the context of rehabilitation influencing neural plasticity as a means for neural restoration, training in the home setting is an essential component of progress and I see Xcite as a great tool in achieving this,” concludes Harkema.

“Repetitive practice of task specific, strengthening and gross motor activities have long been a cornerstone of PT and OT programs for patients with neurological impairments or muscle weakness,” says Andrew Barriskill, CEO of Restorative Therapies. “Xcite is designed to be easily integrated into these traditional programs. Xcite enhances the impact of the traditional therapeutic activities that support neuromuscular reeducation.”

Xcite is the latest result of Restorative Therapies commitment to ongoing development of FES powered physical therapy systems designed to help people with neurological impairments maximize their recovery potential.
